Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the wall crawlers second appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the film will also introduce a number of brand new characters to the MCU. Now, the official Spider-Man: Homecoming app has hinted at a possible connection between one of those new characters and the Marvel Comics villain named The Jackal.
The app allows fans to view Peter Parker’s text messages and one conversation between the lead hero and his best friend, Ned Leeds, confirms that the character named Ms. Warren will be a teacher to the young students.
You can check out the text messages below!
Comic books fans will know that the character, played by Orange is the New Black star Selenis Leyva, shares a surname with Miles Warren, a.k.a The Jackal. A Professor at Empire State University, Warren created several clones of Peter Parker after discovering he was Spider-Man, kicking off the famous Clone Saga comic book storyline.
However, before Professor Warren was introduced, The Amazing Spider #8 introduced Peter’s high school teacher named Mr. Warren, who appears to be officially recognized by Marvel as a separate character and the brother of Professor Warren.
Therefore, Ms. Warren’s surname could simply be a nod to the comics or perhaps she could have a relative out there somewhere who could appear in future films?

A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
Directed by Jon Watts, the film stars Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, Jacob Batalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, Michael Chernus, Kenneth Choi, Hannibal Buress, Martin Starr, Michael Barbieri, Angourie Rice, Abraham Attah, Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey Jr.
